As I'm writing this it's an overcast day here in Virginia so this bright quilt is a welcome treat for my eyes. Margaret Griffiths is a local artist and member of my quilt club, Country School Quilters. She was kind enough to lend this to me to display in my booth at the AQS show. More than one person came into the booth asking for the fabric for this quilt. Sadly, there's only one and Margaret worked magic with it.
Since I had the quilt in my possession fora while I was able to take a couple of extra photographs to show you the wonderful quilting that Margaret did to highlight the dye patterns in the fabric.
There are lots of Crystal fabrics in the shop now of you want to try your hand at quilting your own mandala.
For sharing, Margaret received a 20% coupon for the shop that's good for 3 months! If you have made anything with my hand dyed fabric I hope you will consider sharing it in the Customer Gallery. The only rule is that projects have to be complete. It doesn't have to be made totally from hand dyed fabric, just include a recognizable amount.
I'm Vicki Welsh and I've been making things as long as I can remember. I used to be a garment maker but transitioned to quilts about 20 years ago. Currently I'm into fabric dyeing, quilting, Zentangle, fabric postcards, fused glass and mosaic. I document my adventures here.
